Hello All,

The harmonic balancer on my F351 windsor is completely rusted. I've used a wire wheel and a scraper on the HB to no avail.

Is it possible to fine tune my timing by ear?

The engine is in a boat, and I'd like to run it under load and tweak the distributor as it has a slight miss at 2000rpm.

The 4bbl holley is brand new, as are the plugs, wires, cap and rotor. I have electronic ign.

I "THINK" the engine is supposed to be timed at 10 BTDC.

Any suggestions????

balancer...

I thought about that....but it sounds like a hassle and I don't want to spend the ching.........Plus, as it's in a boat the thing is damn near impossible to work on.

It's very close now...but I think I can get it better. TY
